    New week, new contest, new theme. I have chosen Garden Abstract as the theme.

    Since we are enjoying the summer in the northern hemisphere (sorry Alex and TBG), and a few of us are on home arrest with our cameras, I thought this week, lets do some photography around the house or garden. However, to keep it spicy, no boring shots, lets go for some abstract captures of things no more than #200yardsfromthehouse


    It can be anything but it must be abstract, no being boring and conformist, lets be creative and honestly? Weird about it…

    Enjoy the theme and have fun with it!

    Rules:
    • The photographs must be your own work.
    • Be creative and have fun.
    • You may only submit one photo per contest.
    • Please do not comment on photos until after the judging has taken place.
    • The contest runs for one week, starting NOW! (see time/date stamp at the start of this thread.)
    • At the end of the week, The Judge (last week's Winner) will choose a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place photo, providing as much feedback as possible.
    • The 1st place Winner will start a new thread with the topic/theme of their choice, and act as the Judge for that contest. (Winner has 48 hours to create new theme, after that it defers to 2nd place).
    Go get em!

    Not necessarily a handicap. Oz and winter is way different to Scotland and winter.... :)

    OK, if this doesn't count as abstract enough I'll take it down, but it is in my garden (and still growing), despite the use of, and much to my horror ... a tripod :confused:

    It's been a while since I've played, but this theme just sounds so fun! I'm not really into macro, but this was my shot at the old "flip the 50mm backwards" trick.
